Best to See Your Plainville Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a familiar question Layden Chiropractic gets when Plainville folks talk about chiropractic. Plainville chiropractic patients are a mixed lot. Some Plainville chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and quit. Some Plainville chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue dictates (though following closely the at-home care program that includes lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise keeps these issues at bay for many!). Some Plainville chiropractic patients discover that coming for a Plainville chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a regular basis after pain relief is reached benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when reminded to continuing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Layden Chiropractic appreciates every Plainville chiropractic patient who trusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Plainville chiropractic practice.

OPTIMAL NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN 

Now, just how frequently a Plainville chiropractic patient can gain from Plainville chiropractic care visits is a research-documented answer for chronic low back pain patients. Layden Chiropractic shares a recent project in which chronic low back pain patients received treatment three times a week for 6 weeks. Some visits were with spinal manipulation; some were with light massage; some not treatment at all. Finally, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments created the most favorable results for chronic low back pain patients. At one year follow up, the 18 visits patients showed peak outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Layden Chiropractic uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has studied and reported about other specific spinal conditions the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence allows Layden Chiropractic to really aid our Plainville back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with Plainville chiropractic care.

NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS BY CONDITION 

The number of visits for low back pain episodes varies often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) resulted in data on 1000 back pain patients. It documented the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Globally35, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean outcomes for maximum improvement. For specific conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits differed. There is a difference in treating a disc herniation versus a sprain understandably. One presents a greater challenge to treat  than the other. 91% of patients found low back and leg pain relief on average in fewer than 90 days (when the condition turns "chronic") and 12 visits. (2)
